Nintendo's new gaming console is worth the hype. The Switch enables users to play more effectively and comfortably by providing the the opportunity to plug the tablet into the TV at home and to use two controllers wirelessly or attached to a grip, while also providing the chance to take and play the tablet while on the go or not in front of the TV, without a need for video downloading or streaming, reports Devin Coldewey in TechCrunch. While the device does have some weaknesses, some of which will be worked out over time, overall, the Nintendo Switch is an innovative 'must-have' gaming platform and console.
The new Nintendo Switch is not worth the hype. In trying to serve as a home gaming console, a portable system and a standalone tablet, the device's hardware overreaches and falls short of delivering, writes Vince Ingenito in IGN. While the device's startup time is seamless, its joy stick controllers are limited in range of motion, and its battery life as a portable system lasts only three hours. Plus, there are countless other practical issues and inconveniences, the most bothersome of which is that it lacks on-board memory storage. It is underpowered and unreliable, especially for its $300 price tag.
